Mansfield Town 0 Grimsby Town 2, Tuesday 19th April

STAGS slipped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Grimsby on Tuesday night after their struggling attack once again drew a blank.

Classic sucker-punch goals from Michael Coulson on 35 minutes and l’Anson on 82 minutes earned the visitors all three points in what was another poor second half showing from Mansfield Town.

And, although the fixture was a meaningless game in terms of league positions, the defeat will come as a bitter blow to Duncan Russell’s men who had hoped to avenge their 7-2 thrashing at Blundell Park and build momentum going into the FA Trophy final.
